Chi Gung

Posted at

This morning I attended the first lesson in a four-part weekly course on Chi Gung, given by Michael Oxman, Tzfat's resident practitioner of Chinese medicine. A lot of the principles and material was familiar to me from when I took a course on Tai Chi Chu in the summer session that was my very last semester at university. On the way home after the lesson, my body was rushing with heat sensations and almost more energy than I could contain, so it looks like it got my chi flowing pretty well. Fun so far; we'll see how this develops in the next few weeks.

If you're a fan of standards, then you'll be interested to know that the current romanization standard for rendering chinese in the latin alphabet is called "pinyin." The standard pinyin for "chi gung" is "qi gong." See, this proves that geekiness runs in the family!
